At for the Ageless, we’ve always aimed to stock the most reliable brands available in the UK market. When we started in 2016, there were not many brands out there to choose from and Charlotte’s Web Oil seemed a clear winner to us because it is a trustworthy brand with proven results. The story of the Charlotte's Web Oil is remarkable and we very much appreciated the quality of their CBD oil.
Now that time has gone by and there is a broader supply of high-quality CBD brands in the UK, we’ve found that there are some European brands of a similar and even better quality. These are also more affordable. Our customers often ask us why is it that Charlotte’s Web oils contain a lower amount of CBD than other brands, at a higher price?
The main reason for this is that CW oils need to be imported from Colorado (USA), and therefore import duties and distribution costs increase their final price tag. Charlotte's Web Oil Maximum Strength, for instance, contains 1800mg of CBD and retails at £164.99. In contrast, Love Hemp’s 20% (with 2000mg of CBD extract) retails at £129.99 (that is a £35 difference with Love Hemp carrying an extra 200mg of CBD extract). Coincidentally, Love Hemp’s CBD comes from hemp also grown in Colorado under organic standards. We considered this and decided to focus on alternatives closer to home.
Why not choose a local (UK or European) brand that has been tested by a third-party lab and is transparent about the amount of CBD content vs. price?
When the Stanley Brothers came up with the hemp strain Charlotte's Web for a little girl called Charlotte Figi, they could not have imagined that this hemp extract would become world-famous. Its ground-breaking benefits opened the doors to many other CBD oil and hemp extract manufacturers to produce better and better strains of hemp and improve production standards. Charlotte's Web Oil has been featured on CNN, 60 Minutes and many other mainstream media channels. As the benefits of CBD oil have become more well-known, CBD hemp extract has been widely recognised by mainstream authorities and the public for its positive stories and favourable research. It is now legal in the UK and Europe as long as it contains below 0.2% THC. Charlotte's Web Oil is, reportedly, a THC free brand like all other legal CBD oil brands.
for the Ageless ship to the UK and to all EU where CBD oil is legal. Some Charlotte's Web Oil is still available as a CBD oil extract with olive oil base, as CBD capsules, a cream, and a balm made with CW CBD hemp extract.
